Marvel has pulled off something many would have dismissed as impossible not that long ago — they’ve created a cohesive cinematic universe that weaves throughout individual films and brings the heroes together for the big-screen Avengers team-ups. With Marvel’s grand experiment raking in billions at the box office, it’s no surprise that their Distinguished Competition — DC Comics — is trying to play catch-up, beginning with last summer’s Man of Steel, and continuing in the upcoming sequel to that film. Now a rumor is circulating that actor/wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson might be joining the DC cinematic universe, and that hopefully he’ll look good in green.
The rumor mill began churning when Johnson tweeted the following last week.
